About the Department:

The Department of Economics was established in July 1951 with Sri.A.Peri Sastry as its founder Head of the Department. Since then the Department has occupied a prominent position in fostering academic life in the campus. The faculty of Arts has always been in the forefront not only in achieving excellence in academics but also in enriching and moulding the lives of students. Being the core subject for both arts and commerce faculties, the department with two members has sprung up into the department with 11 members. In spite of growing demand for computer education, changing govt. policies and emerging of new colleges around this institution, the department has retained 2 Aided and 3 un-Aided lecturers by introducing new courses like Contemporary India, and Ethics and Values. Thus the department has continued to be the full fledged departments in the college.
